◆ Recent archaeological research has proved that a group of kilns in the Fujian province were producing coarse porcelain for export mainly to the Asian market from circa 1570 until circa 1650, but not to Europe where they preferred the lighter and better-quality porcelain from the private Jingdezhen kilns.
The Portuguese and later the Dutch were active traders in these wares in the inter-Asia commerce, which were known as Swatow porcelain from the port from where they were exported.

The long civil wars of the mid-17th century ended, or reduced drastically, the activity of these kilns.
